Free software is software that gives the user freedom to run, study modify and share/redistribute copies of Software.To use free software is to make a political and ethical choice asserting the right to learn, and share what we learn with others. With Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.This is in contrast to proprietary software, where the software is under restrictive copyright licensing and the source code is usually hidden from the users.
